Wow, $800 for that black box? I picked one up for $236 from Tischner and took me 15 minutes to install on our 535xiT. That is some expensive service!

Good to hear that your warranty company...

yeah, that was exactly what I ran into. I offered $27.5, they came down eventually to $28.5 after some back and forth over several days. Definitely the 328xi is not a car that is lacking potential...

I just purchased the same car, but a 2009 CPO, with 27k miles, and a really nice red coral interior, and got it for $28.5. Looking around at all the other dealers in the area, it definitely was a...

Convince me why I shouldn't buy a 328xi...

OK, so testing both late models of the 328i and 328xi here, with the steptronic (manual shift mode, can't find an actual stick anywhere), they feel pretty darn similar. Cornering, the 328xi feels a...

Thanks for the responses. Guess I should get ready to make the long trip for a test drive? MT's have always been more fun for me to drive, even in my little Subaru Legacy. Just something about...

E90 328i manual tranny; improvement over the Steptronic?

For those who have driven both or know about both, how does the Steptronic compare to the manual on this car? Both are 2011 328i models.

Still collecting info here, looking at a late model E90...

Interesting! The 7c rating gives me pause: It is dropping below that temp here every other night by late July. Obviously, snow/ice is a no-go with summer tires; that really wasn't my question. It...

Summer tires dangerous at low temps?

Even though I haven't decided on a car yet (still stuck between a 328i and 335xi, it snows here a lot...), I started doing research on tires, as I have found the cost of tires to be much more...

Thanks! I do have a Japanese car for my main ride in the snow. Still, this has to work at least OK. In a big year, we get 40-60 inches here in town, but I drive up to the mountain too. Been...

1st time 3-series buyer-328 vs. 335 longevity

Hi all,

I am seriously looking at purchasing a used (certified pre-owned) 328ix or 335ix. My local dealer has both. I am well aware of the performance difference! 335 is MT, 328 is fun to drive,...
